Structured, uniform and actionable information

Each company employs its unique idiom, terms, and definitions, even for identical concepts. Achieving structured and comparable reporting requires a tool to standardise these diverse elements.

On the same page with a taxonomy

To meet the need for high-quality information, a taxonomy is required. A taxonomy is a precise specification of what needs to be reported to the party requesting the data. A taxonomy typically consists of a dictionary containing relevant concepts and a description of the required (accountability) information. The taxonomy includes clear definitions, allowing reporting entities to submit the necessary information.


Data quality

Processing unstructured information is both challenging and error prone. Taxonomies offer detailed definitions and rules, resulting in fewer errors and higher data accuracy.


Better comparability

When you use a taxonomy, data is more structured and standardised. So, comparisons between reports are easy to do and data can be shared more easily between organisations.


Reduce your reporting burden

A taxonomy reduces your reporting burden by enabling data submission once, allowing multiple uses. This streamlined approach saves time and enhances reporting and information processing efficiency.


Who is this for?

Taxonomies are valuable for any organisation that processes and receives large amounts of information. They benefit through improved internal and external reporting, standardisation, and streamlined information processing. This includes organisations such as:
  • Banks and financial institutions
  • Government agencies
  • Standard setters
  • Regulators
  • Chambers of commerce
  • Trade Associations

Applying Taxonomies in Sustainability Reporting

Anyone that has compiled information for a sustainability report knows that it’s a work-intensive process. Some companies decide to forgo sustainability reporting altogether, in part because it’s difficult to do. However, with the EU’s Non-financial reporting directive - which came into effect in 2018 - and public concerns over climate change increasing, failing to report on your sustainability targets is no longer an option.

    I got to know Visma Connect B.V. better over the past few months. They quickly built a connection between #ionbiz and Twinfield. With this integration, we can help McCoy keep their accounting in sync with operational sales. I am happy with the collaboration.

  3. René Houwen
    From the tender, ZIN was looking for a proactive supplier to guide and advise ZIN in the development and implementation of improvements to the applications and to shape this through a partnership rather than a customer-supplier relationship. This includes, among other things, the further development and application of innovations within the KIK-V program, especially the KIK-Starter and various products of iStandaarden. In Visma Connect, we have found this innovative partner, and together, we are building towards a better future for healthcare in the Netherlands.
